Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

The salutes of many vessels


We left Battle Harbor this morning in company with the Associated Press tug amid the salutes of many vessels and boats and the boom of the canon on the hill.
    The Strachona (Strathcona) came in last night with Dr. Grenfell on board. He came over later in the evening and was introduced to us all. Examined my arm where I was shot Aug. 11 and offered some good suggestions as regards my thumb. His secretary, a Mr. Frank Sayre, a Williams man 1909, goes to Sydney with us.
